And the ambulance chasing Attorneys keep raking in the big bucks.
"Resistance Roberts" can jam his "non-partisan" pronouncements up his keester.
I am not surprised at all by this. Now we shall i shall wait to see Sidney’s next move.
By the way where is Durham report.
Do NOT trust SCOTUS. Roberts is a lefty.
The only answer is violence on our side.
Their mob gets its way. It’s time overdue for out mob.
Find that Emmet judge, tar and feather him. Find news anchors, tar and feather them.
” Majority Leader McConnell were too busy collaborating with Democrats “
Yes and for that exact reason the voters of Kentucky need to dump McConnell. He is totally worthless as a leader and a Republican.
They REALLY go out of their way to persecute Trump supporters. It’s as if the defendant has no rights at all and they can trample all over the Constitution.
This isn’t America.
I dont conoone violence. But I fell like you are correct.
Sorry for the typo issue.
The scary part about this is that the argument that the judge doesn’t have the right to contest the appellate court decision was pretty persuasive. He is not a litigant, just a judge, so he does not have a right to appeals. Of course, he didn’t have a right to a lawyer, either, but it has been insane all along, so why not an appeal, too. Soon, they will let him take over the prosecution.
President Trump should pardon Flynn. The federal courts will never let Flynn be free; they want him to die in prison.
Yeah, but he will tell you that the courts and judges are not political!
We are living on the precipice of a violent Marxist coup.
I just hope that before I die, if Civil war II starts, I get to take out 10 before they take me.
This is going exactly as I thought it would go. The entire circuit court will review it and toss it out or it will go to the Supreme Court where it will definitely be tossed out based on the fact that without an accuser, there is no case. Unfortunately, it gives the democrats just what they want, another way to influence the election in November.
The case transmogrified from US v. Flynnn to Sullivan v. Flynn.
I don’t mean that in a flippant way. It’s a reasonable literal view. Sullivan has been indicating interest in use of a court’s inherent criminal contempt power, in light of a motion to withdraw guilty plea. The argument is that the guilty plea is itself perjurous (he does not plan to charge taht, he can’t), and had it been a not guilty plea, Flynn would have been showing properdeference to the court.
Criminal contempt is an inherent power of the court. But to apply to withdraw of guilty plea is unprecedented, especially in light of government admission there is no case and so on.
The government isn’t a party, no matter what. This is court vs. defendant. The government’s stake in this is government power to withdraw a charge. as far as the court is concerned, it HAS allowed the charge to be withdrawn. What Sullivan is not releasing is the defendant, and he is doing so by abuse of judicial power.
I’m too old to participate in a revolution. All I can do is protect my own property.
US District Judge Emmet Sullivan is resisting the Justice Departments attempt to drop the case.
Talk Radio was singing Happy Days Are Here Again a little too early.
Too bad Antifa can’t make themselves useful and go to Sullivan’s house at midnight every night.
Since never. But here, Sullivan is asserting he is protecting the COURT, not "the people." Criminal law is "people vs." Broke a law, etc.
Sullivan is eyeballing what is called "criminal contempt." This is inherent power of ANY court. The power for federal courts is codified at 18 USC 401, but the power does not depend on this section of code.
A court of the United States shall have power to punish by fine or imprisonment, or both, at its discretion, such contempt of its authority, and none other, ...
This is an oddball creature of law.
